New sales tax takes effect
A new quarter-cent sales tax to support the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office went into effect this week.
This means customers should already be seeing a slight difference in the total price when they buy items in Lincoln Parish.
“We are getting ready to send out letters to ensure people change the cash registers to reflect the quarter-cent increase,” said Anel Salinas, auditor with the Lincoln Parish Sales and Use Tax Commission. “We’ve noticed a few businesses that have not yet changed them.”
